On Tuesday just after noon, a Bartow County deputy was dispatched to a Gilreath Road residence in reference to criminal trespass.

Upon arrival, the deputy met with the complainant at his residence. The complainant told the deputy that at 11:30 a.m. an unknown Asian male was in his front yard collecting pecans. The complainant attempted to confront the male, but he did not appear to speak English because he only smiled and waved.

According to the complainant, the same thing happened Jan. 7. The complainant said the male was not a threat, but he did not want him on his property. The suspect left the area before the deputy arrived.

At 1:40 a.m. the next morning, the deputy was again dispatched to the property in reference to the male returning. While en route, the deputy noticed a male fitting the description of the suspect. He approached the male and attempted to speak to him about the incident. However, he did not speak English.

Due to the language barrier, the deputy gave the male a ride home in an attempt to talk with an English-speaking family member. The deputy met with the male’s wife but she did not speak English either. The deputy explained to the male that he was trespassing and asked him not to return to the property.

<*C>Power lines damaged, suspect Rambo flees

Just after 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, a deputy was dispatched to the intersection of Bonaire Street at Young Street in reference to criminal damage to property.

The deputy met with the complainant who said the main power line and the neutral power line were damaged when a tree fell, knocking the lines down. The deputy then spoke with the witness, who was allegedly cutting down the lower limbs of a tree on his property near the roadway.

The suspect, only known as Rambo, then exited the wood line on his property and offered to help cut the tree’s upper portion for $10. As Rambo was cutting the limbs, one fell and knocked the power lines to the ground. The witness said Rambo then climbed down the ladder and ran away.
